What are you waiting for!!!!
The SURF kite does exactly what it's suppose to do in the waves but that is only if you are looking for a wave kite, and it has been proven so many times. Trust me you won't be disappointed. I have seen the reaction on people's faces so many times on how impressed they are after testing it.

Found this cool picture of Dimitri unhooked in the waves. But when he was with a different brand.

Hi Dimitri - you kited with our Syracuse and Rochester contingent last Friday at Jockey Ridge in SE wind and one of the riders got to ride the Surf Kite (he thinks it was the Surf kite). I was down in Hatteras last week (Waves Village) but missed the session due to family obligations. Peter Jeffers, the rider and friend of mine, raved about it. Said it was so solid and he "knew right where it was at all times". He is seriously considering that kite now. Also thought the bar was way improved from the earlier Epic bar. Believe me he was an Epic critic before but now he is "very impressed"... He also tried the Renegade that day and raved about that...

Any chance that the 12m Surf kite could be demoed at some point? All of us are interested in a big surfable kite. I have at least 10 guys and a couple gals that would love to try that kite. Winds up here are routinely 13-19 mph. Let me know when a demo might be available - Thanks, Mark

Hello markchatwin and thank you for taking the time posting this.
If you are still on the Outer Banks I will be happy to have you guys try the SURF 12 kite and see what this kite is all about. Just let me know where you are, and will have you on the water with a SURF 12 or 8 or 5 to demo depending the conditions.
If you left the Outer Banks, just let me know your address and will send you the SURF 12 once I am done with the demos here on the Outer Banks.

We are out in Hatteras at the moment with a group of varied ability riders and have all the Epic models here for demo (huge thanks to Dimitri as always).
Our group have been using all of the Epic range and one of the surprise kites (or maybe not) is the 12m Surf kite.

This has been used in light winds in the waves and everyone has mentioned that it really does not feel like a 12m in the way it turns, it turns much more like a 9m...but also one of our group is a beginner and he has progressed so much whilst using the 12m Surf in the sound...it has become his kite of choice and he has mastered his first upwind runs and is totally stoked on it!
